Pc DOES NOT boot with HD4890 // BOOTS WITHOUT IT! HELP?!

Hi,

Problem: Blank screen (black) when I boot with the HD4890 installed. No mouse or keyboard power. When I take it out (the Hd4890) it boots perfectly using the onboard graphics of my motherboard.

Motherboard:

ASUS M4A78T-E :fou:

PLEASE, OH PLEASE HELP! :(

Is it some Bios setting? Is it an update for the drivers? Is it a hardware problem? Did I install my gpu wrong?

Been looking and looking for the past 10 hours, I'm desprate.

    I dont see how this is relevant though.. the graphics card is installed correctly, its just some kind of Bios setting or driver that's missing.. Or am I wrong?
  5. NEWS:

    Got to boot in windows with the Hd4890 in it! BUT!: I had to set the standard (default) GFX to onboard.

    Now I get error code 43 for the Hd4890

    some more info about the error?

    Device information
    Name: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

    Id: PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9460&SUBSYS_27021682&REV_00\4&204EAC5&0&0010

    Also I did a bios update.. Didnt do alot..

    PLEASE GUYS :<
  6. Sounds like a driver issue for your HD4890. What drivers do you have installed (and what OS are you using)?
  7. Windows 7 64-bit (Ultimate) And I've tried installing and uninstalling drivers, but when I try to install any drivers for the detected 'Radeon 4800 series' I get Error code 43.

    I'm returning my GFX card for testing.
  8. Good luck. Let us know if that works.

    Before doing that - take the 4890 out of the system - boot into windows using the onboard - go in and change the video driver to the default VGA driver and shut down the system. - Reinstall the 4890 and ensure it is all hooked up (including moving the monitor plug to the 4890 - boot the system and enter BIOS and disable the onboard and set the default boot video to the PCI-e slot - save the changes and let the system boot - after windows loads go in and install the drivers for the 4890 (If it doesn't do this automatically using the found new hardware)
  10. I had this problem exact problem, the card was FUBAR & apparently it was my fault so I'm £150 out of pocket. Never buying ATI again unless I have to.
